Fees for our services are on a sliding scale based on gross family income. Fees for therapy are billed per session. Individual therapy sessions are 50 minutes in length, while couples and family therapy sessions are 80 minutes. Group therapy rates vary depending on the length and format of the group. There is a one-time fee for formal assessments (neuropsychological / psycho-educational / psychodiagnostic assessments), which is also on a sliding scale based on gross family income.
Fees are payable by cash, cheque or credit card. Credit card payments are available through our online payment portal only. If paying by cash, please bring exact amount as we are unable to provide change.
The CPC does not accept post-dated cheques or debit cards. Clients whose cheques are returned because of insufficient funds are charged an administrative fee of $25.00 for each returned cheque. Cheques are valid for six months from the date of issue and it is the responsibility of the client to ensure that funds are available in their account until the cheque is cleared during this period.
The CPC requires 24 hours notice for cancellation of a therapy appointment. There is no charge for appointments cancelled with 24 hours notice. In the event of a Late Cancellation (L/C) (less than 24 hours notice) or a missed appointment/No Show (N/S), The CPC policy is as follows: clients will not be charged for the first L/C or N/S. However, any subsequent L/C or N/S will be billed at 50% of the fee. The goal of this policy is to strike a reasonable balance between human error and personal accountability.
COVID-19 update to our cancellation policy: Please note that clients will not be charged for any late cancellations due to illness. If clients are experiencing any cold or flu symptoms, do not attend the clinic for in-person appointments.
